Interest at forum on Fishermans bend Image

The community forum on the Fishermans Bend development was held at Boyd Community Hub in October with many locals taking up the opportunity to discover and discuss the plans for the future suburb.

Attendees were guided around a number of maps explaining exactly how the land is going to be developed and what effects that would mean for Southbank.

The forum was organised on behalf of Places Victoria (the authority in charge of the draft document) by consultation group Capire.

The forum at Boyd Community Hub was one of four held around Melbourne.

A spokesperson from Places Victoria said it had been happy with the number of people coming along to the forums.

“Attendances at the Fishermans Bend Urban Renewal Area community information forums has been strong, with good overall support for the draft vision and interim design guidelines,” the spokesperson said.

“The forums have been attended by people from across Melbourne and it was pleasing to have the Boyd forum attended by a number of local residents.”

“Feedback and ideas from the community and stakeholders about the draft vision and interim design guidelines will inform the development of the Fishermans Bend Strategic Framework Plan to be released in summer 2014.”
